Got to agree re the parade,couldn't see where any of them come from or even hear them being introduced.

Referee was definitely a disgrace and shouldn't be allowed another Gp.

Racing to me is still so,so just get hooked up with the atmosphere really.

Unsure on the level of attendance,but imo they shouldn't have 3 in Poland anyway.Maybe take one off them and put one at Belle Vue.As i said previously Cardiff has worn a bit thin with me now,but put one at Belle Vue where you know you will get very good racing with these top guys and i think i would attend again.

Where would all the spectators fit at Belle Vue? What's its capacity? 9,000? I don't know, but someone must.... If 36,000 to 46,000 is roughly Cardiff, it just won't work..

That's about the tops with the stand on bend 3-4. To make the money they would have to do a pay-as-you-view special. I would accept that even though I BT TV subscriber.

I didn't say do away with Cardiff they could have both.If they could fit 9,000 in that would top Prague by 1,500 spectators.There are also a few Gp circuits that only have 10-15,00 spectator capacity.

I didn't mean instead of Cardiff either! But why would 36,000 to 46,000 go to Cardiff, and only around 9,000 or less to Belle Vue, sure, it would sell out, but would it make any money? Ticket prices would have to increase tremendously to make it viable, plus as "OFF" said, BT would have to make it a PPV event to improve revenue......

Do they not then make money from Prague and Hallstavik which only hold 7,500 and 10,000 respectively.

THE cost of staging a meeting at an established venue with a permanent track is massively cheaper than at the Principality for example.
